Sleeping Dogs arise in August

United Front's Sleeping Dogs, the open-world crime 'em up formerly known as True Crime: Hong Kong, has been dated for August 14. As ever, there are a variety of retailer-exclusive pre-order bonuses to thrill, confound, and irritate.

Pre-order bonuses for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions include exclusive outfits, vehicles, missions, and, oddly, clobber and moves inspired by MMA fighter Georges St. Pierre. Check out the Sleeping Dogs site for more on what you get where.

Goodies for the PC edition are to be announced "at a later date," publisher Square Enix says.
